Put a spring in your step this month with friends and family and organise your own sponsored walk.

Rural ramble or city stroll, it’s all up to you – just pick your route, choose your distance and get walking. After a winter inside, this is the perfect way to take in the springtime sun and longer days. So pull on your shoes, meet up safely with your friends and walk, for anyone affected by breast cancer.

How to organise a fundraising walk

  • Choose your distance – before you start, have a think about how long you want the walk to be. Long walk or step counting – don’t be afraid to challenge yourself. Go for something that you’ll be proud of when it’s all said and done.
  • Pick the place – location is important, and the best part about a walking challenge is it’s all up to you. Go for something sentimental – maybe a stroll through where you grew up, or maybe something based on the sights you’ll see along the way. Remember, we’re always here to help you plan it out and make it happen.
  • Track it – finding out how far you’ve gone or how many steps you’ve done has never been easier. Strava is a great app for a walking challenge – it tracks how far you’ve walked and how many steps you’ve taken in real time. And it’s free, too!
  • Look the part – don’t forget your Breast Cancer Now t-shirt! Just let us know you’d like one at community@breastcancernow.org, and we’ll send it through to you to wear on the day. Good luck!
  • Shout about it – make sure you share your walking challenge all over social media. Tell people what you’re doing, and share your JustGiving page so they can donate. On the day, tell everyone how far you’ve gone – screenshots showing your distance walked are always great!
